Junior MasterChef Review And Give Away

Kids in the kitchen - Junior MasterChef

Thank you to every one for entering the Junior Master Chef Give Away. The competition is now closed and the winner will be announced later today.

It wasn’t only adults that became absorbed in MasterChef Australia earlier this year, but kids too. It was a show that the whole family could watch together and it encouraged many kids to actually get into the kitchen and cook. To help this even further MasterChef Australia is releasing is a Junior Masterchef range and I was asked to review one of their new kits.

My kids were so very excited to see the Junior MasterChef Egg kit arrive in the mail last Friday. So excited that we had to ditch our planned meal for that evening and cook scrambled eggs for dinner!

While the kids were pretty much just excited because they were cooking a “MasterChef” recipe with “MasterChef” utensils, I on the other hand was excited with the quality of the products in the kit. The mixing bowl that came with our Egg Kit is sturdy and durable and has an appropriate sized hand rest for junior chefs. The handle of the whisk allows children to hold it properly and create a fluent whisking motion.

The Junior MasterChef range is aimed at children aged between 3 and 15 and are now available at Big W, Kmart, Myer and Target. The range includes:

  • Junior MasterChef Australia Cupcake Kit – RRP: $39.95
  • Junior MasterChef Australia Cake Kit – RRP: $39.95
  • Junior MasterChef Australia Pizza Kit – RRP: $34.95
  • Junior MasterChef Australia Egg Kit – RRP: $29.95

    My little princess loves cooking with mum so having her own Junior MasterChef Cookie Kit would make her day!

  10. Stephy says

    I’d love for my girl who is 3 to teach her little brother who is 1 all of her cooking tips to make the perfect omelette with a Junior Masterchef Egg pack!

  11. Kirsten Phillips says

    My 10 year old nephew Cosmo has totally taken control of the kitchen. Since MasterChef every meal plan must be scrutinised by him, if not cooked by him. He is a serious foodie in development. The cookie set looks a little more challenging and appealling for my young pastry prince!

  12. Rachel Chapman says

    Junior MasterChef Cake Kit: my little sister loves making cakes. Every birthday is always fun. We try new recipes! This set would be the PERFECT present for her!

  13. Haley Douglas says

    The Junior Masterchef Cookie kit would be fantastic for our family so we can fill up lunchboxes with homemade delights!
